FOIFT

Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas

The Light of Day Project is a perfect fit for the ideals of the FOIFT, which focus on education about the Texas Public Information and Open Meetings Acts and helping to protect the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. The Foundation believes the education provided in the Light of Day Project is invaluable to those involved in understanding the issues and concepts behind public information.

Student journalists involved with the Light of Day Project have won multiple awards for their investigative stories. The FOIFT is proud to be a part of a project that not only teaches future journalists how to obtain and use public information to develop stories, but most importantly, it gets them excited about being watch dogs for society and bringing about change.
